Veepstakes: More contenders emerge on short list for Biden\'s running mate and undergo vetting

WASHINGTON More potential vice president contenders emerged Thursday as being on the short list or having advanced to the vetting stage to become Joe Biden's running mate, multiple news outlets report.

CBS News first reported that Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., has been asked by Biden's campaign to undergo a formal vetting to be considered for the veep slot.

Its not yet clear if Klobuchar, who ran for the 2020 Democratic nomination herself, has consented to the vetting, however, CBS reported that the request for such information from potential running mates like Klobuchar "is underway."

The vetting process will be handled by Biden's vice presidential selection committee, which includes four co-chairs: former U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd; U.S. Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester; Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti; and Cynthia Hogan, former White House and Senate counsel to Biden.
